Banana Oat Cookies

12 December 2023

These cookies are a great alternative, as they contain less fat and sugar compared to standard cookies.

Nutritional highlights

These cookies are low in fat, saturates and salt, meaning they are heart healthy! Too much saturated fat in our diet can lead to increased cholesterol levels and this can increase our chances of heart disease as the cholesterol can build up in our arteries.

Too much salt in our diet can lead to increased blood pressure which is a risk for heart disease.

This means these cookies are a much healthier option to regular cookies.

  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 165g oats
